THE KID-WEST TENNESSEE GENEALOaiCAL SOCIETY is proud to 
announce the publication of "Riverside Cemetery Inscriptions" 
as its Bicentennial project. The 130 pages represent many- 
hours spent at the cemetery by a dozen or more Society mem- 
bers who live in Jackson and countless additional hours in 
indexing and getting it ready for the printer. 

"Riverside Cemetery was established in 1830. Many of the 
regions pioneers are buried here. Included a^e veterans of 
all wars from the Revolution to World War II. 

"In two sections lie uraiarkej Ccnfederade soldiers who par- 
ticipated in the defense of Jackson during the War Between 
The States 1861-65. 

"HERE SLEEPS THE FOUNDERS OF JACKSON" 

The above two paragraphs are taken from an historical mar- 
ker placed by the State of Tennessee at the entrance to the 
cemetery which is located en Riverside Drive in Jackson, 
Tennessee. 

It was decided tc make this a project cf the society when 
we vera unable to locate even one copy locally cf a listing 
made some 40 years ago by the Works Progress Administration. 
The Tennessee State Library and Archives had only one copy 
which they copied for us. There have been many burials in 
the cemetery since that time and some errors have been cor- 
rected. Riverside Cemetery was not the first city burial 
ground in Jackson, but when streets were laid out at the 
site cf the original burial ground, the bodies from that 
cemetery were removed to the Riverside location. Hence 
some death dates may preceed the 1630 date. Many of the 
oldest stones are no longer legible, however.

UNITED STATES IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION 

Ronald A. Bremer, A. G. 

(Adapted from a lecture delivered before The Genealogical 
Society of Pennsylvania, September 1972, and shared with 
us by the author. ) 

Theme: "You should never try to locate an immigrant ances- 
tor in the country of origin until you have performed general 
searches in all of the jurisdictions where he lived in the 
country of destination." 

Reasons for Migrating: During the colonial period most immi- 
grants came for religious reasons. Immigration during the 
last century was primarily for economic reasons and the moti- 
vation during this century was social. Almost every family 
seems to have a tradition which states that "three brothers 
came to America to escape the draft. One Jumped ship and 
married an Indian princess." Some of our ancestors came as 
slaves or convicts. Most came as indentured servants. 

Colonial Period: It is important to remember that the Crown 
did not naturalize British subjects. Also, many Germans 
found that merely by taxing the Oath of Allegiance they could 
both own land and vote. Hence, many were never naturalized. 
The first colonial naturalizations were in the late 1600's. 

Federal Period: The largest or peak period of immigration 
occurred during the period from the 1870's to the 1920's. 
During the federal period, individuals could be naturalized 
in any court of record. Records of naturalization are then 
found in both federal and state courts. Most were naturali- 
zed in a county court which is part of the state court system. 

New England: it is reportedly very difficult to trace an 
early New Englander due to the sparsity of records and some 
record destruction. The opposite is usually true. It Is in- 
teresting to note that Mr. Powell, in his book "Puritan Vill- 
age", was able to locate the overseas home of 32 of the 33 
original settlers of Sudbury, Massachusetts. 

Eastern Seaboard: One of the most helpful books on this sub- 
ject is Dr. Jean Stephenson's "Scotch-Irish Migration to 
Sourth Carolina. It is really a book on general Scotch- 
Irish migration. 

National Archives: Most of the important early federal rec- 
ords pertaining to immigration are located in the National 
Archives. These include: passenger lists, shipping lists, 
some naturalizations and other records. 



Federal Records Centers: Most of the Important federal court 
and many naturalization records for each of the various states 
have been deposited In one of the fifteen federal records cen- 
ters. The indexes to the Federal District Courts are usually 
still located In the federal district courthouses. 

U. S. Government: Many aliens, immigrants, and citizens appear 
in the records of the various government agencies, especially 
Congress. Often individuals petitioned directly to Congress. 

Immigrant Aid Societies: Most of the various ethnic groups 
early formed these special societies or groups to help encour- 
age emigration. One of the earliest of these was The Scots 
Charitable Society of Boston, which was founded in 1657. The 
German Society was founded In Philadelphia in 1764, and the 
Hibernian Society Started in 1812. 

1900 Federal Census. There are over thirty items of infor- 
mation on this census. They are: street house number, visi- 
tation order, family order, name, relationship, color, sex, 
birth month, birth year, age, marital status, place of birth, 
parents place of birth, year immigrated, years in U. S., nat- 
uralization, occupation, months unemployed, attended school, 
can read, can write, can speak English, own or rent, clear 
or mortgaged, farm or house, and number of farm schedule. 

Court Records: There are two systems of courts in America. 
They are federal and state. It is estimated that about ten 
per cent of the population during the last century litigated 
in a federal court. As an average an individual appeared in 
court once every seven years or three times every twenty 
years . 

Spheres of Authority: How many different jurisdictions or 
record-creating agencies did our ancestors reside in during 
thier lifetime? It is not unusual to locate over one hun- 
dred separate documents or sources for an individual living 
in the mid-1800 1 s, for example. The national average for the 
last three hundred years seems to be at least twenty-five. 

Insurance Records: Insurance companies have been operating 
in this land since the mid-1700 1 s. Most of our ancestors 
since that time have taken out or at least applied for one 
life insurance policy in their lifetime. Usually these ori- 
ginal applications are still on file in the home office of 
the company concerned. Another type of insurance company 
which has existed, especially since the late 1800's is the 
alliance or fraternal insuranoe company. 

Naturalizations: How do you find out where your ancestor 
was naturalized? If this event occurred after 1906, a copy 
cf the record concerned should be in Washington, D. C. in 
the Department of Immigration and Naturalization. For those 
cocurrding prior to this date, one of the best locating de- 
vices in this regard, is the voting list.

ALEXANDER McCULLAR, Revolutionary Pension Claim 

DECLARATION IN ORDER TO OBTAIN THE BENEFITS OF THE ACT OF 
CONGRESS PASSED June 7th, 1832. PENSION NO. S-4196 

State of Tenneaaee ) 

McNalry County ) On this the twenty third day of Sept- 
ember, in the year of our Lord, One thousand eight hundred and 
thirty three, parsonnaly appeared in Open Court before the 
County Court of pleas and quarter sessions now setting, 
Alexander McCuller, a resident of McNairy County and State of 
Tennessee aged seventy five years, who being first duly sworn 
according to law doth on his Oath make the following Declar- 
ation in order to obtain the benefit of the act of Congress 
passed June the 7th. 1832. That I was born in the County of 
Entrain, Ireland on the twenty second day of December in the 
year of our Lord 1758. When I was fourteen years of age, my 
father, self and family emigrated from Ireland and landed 
after a tolerable short passage at Savannah In the State of 
Georgia. From there we went to Burke County where we remained 
a short time, then we moved to Augusta in Georgia where I en- 
tered the Service of the United States as a volunteer soldier 
in the year (as well as I now recolect) 1779 under Captain 
James Martin and Col. MoMurphy. As soon as the regiment was 
raised, we was attached to General Howe and a very few days 
after our junction with him we took up our line of march for 
the Floridas going by the way of St. Tillies river and St. 
Maries River, here we called a halt and remained five days. 
The army was at this time very sickly and the Officers thought 
it prudent to march home, so we returned home near the same 
way that we marched out, and was discharged in August*, do not 
now recolect the date. In this Expidition or tour I cannot 
say poatively how long I served, but I am postive I served not 
lees than six months, for which servlses I claim a Pension. 
I did not recieve any written discharge nor can I tell the 
reason why. 

On the 27th day of October in the year 1782, I again entered 
the service of the United States as a volunteer soldier in 
Burke County, State of Georgia for the term of three months 
under Captain Alexander Erwin. As soon as the Company was 
made up we march to a place called Eberneasor on the Savannah 
River, there we was attached to General Wayne. We remained In 
Garrison at this place for a long time guarding that place from 
the British and to keep them from as sending the river, heap I 
was discharged after my turn of three Months was out. I do not 
recolect of ever getting a discharge, if I did it is now lost 
cr destroyed. 

He has no Documentary Evidence and that he knows of no person 
whose testimony he can prooure who can testify to his servises. 
He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a Pension or 
Annuity except the present and declares that his name is not 
on the pension roll of the agency of any State.

LEWIS M. EDGAR, (AUTO) BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH 

(From "A History of the Primitive Baptist in the Western 
Districts of Kentucky and Tennessee", written in 1882.) 

Lewis M. Edgar was born In Logan County, Ky. on the 19th day 
of February, 1805, but did not remain there very long. My 
father moved in December 1809 to the north-east part of Mont- 
gomery county, Tenn. , where he lived but three years. During 
that time, I was sent to an old field school master, and lea- 
rned to read. In the early part of 1 8 1 3 S he moved again, some 
two or three miles into Christian county, Ky. , whioh after- 
wards, became Todd county, in the vicinity where Guthrie city 
now is. I had to work hard. Sometimes went to school a few 
weeks, to but little profit. 

When I was about thirteen, or fourteen years old, when I 
would hear preaching, it would cause serious impressions on 
my mind, for several days, inquiring how these things could 
be, but they would wear off of my mind, until I heard them 
preached again, and those serious reflections would return 
and then gradually go off again, until I was about seventeen 
years old. The thought was suggested to me that if there 
was any reality in these things, they would not vanish away, 
as they did, and for near two years, I strove to disbelieve 
that, there was any reality in religion — -that everything came 
by chance, and would go in like manner. 

During my nineteenth year, I went to school to try to improve 
my education, not thinking or caring about religious matters. 

But In January, 1624, my father moved to the western district 
of Tennessee, Henry county. The county was thinly settled. 
We built sere little cabins and got them tolerably well fixed. 
I had to work hard tc clear land, and try to make a support. 

Shortly after we 2a-e tc the county, my mind again became 
arrested--! t =ee~ez tc come with foroe and power that I could 
net resist, that there was a reality in the religion of Jesus 
Christ, arc that I had been rebellious against a good God and 
was a sir.r.er, I thought I must do something to get better than 
I was. 

I will state here that, when I was a small boy I resolved that, 
I would never engage in profane swearing, whioh pledge I have 
kept until now. "Gambling and drunkeness I protested against, 
and I never had been in a ball-room, or danoing yard, and I 
declare now, that is not the way to follow Jesus Christ. But 
notwithstanding I was clear of these vices, I was a sinner, 
and how to get out of it, was the question. Trying to pray 
seemed to be of no avail. I read the Scriptures, whioh de- 
clared that Jesus was a Savior, but he was not my savior. 



30 



My sins seemed to increase, and I would sometimes try to hide 
my troubles, by merriment, with suoh company, but when absent 
from them, my case was worse. I oould not work, for I would 
find myself standing in a study about my situation; at length 
one Sunday morning I walked to a place where there were some 
young people, that I had previous to that time passed off 
some time with, but I suppose I had not hid my sorrows, as much 
as common. A young lady said to me. "I believe you are trying 
to get good," which was a death blow to me. It. seemed that my 
sorrows were not hid from the world, and now what shall I do? 
I left that place — spent the day walking about, studying, what 
would become of me? It seemed that all nature looked gloomy; 
I thought the little birds were better off than I was. It 
seemed that, if I oould ohange situations with the brute crea- 
tion, it would be better for me. I believed that Jesus was a 
savior of sinners, but I was one unnoticed, and passed by, and 
that my days were about to end in sorrow. 

The 27th of May, 1824, was a gloomy day with me; it seemed 
that it was my last day in this world. When the night came on, 
and when the family retired I lay down as usual, and when the 
light died out in the house, it seemed that I was never to see 
the light any more. The breathings of my soul were prayer to 
God, for his mercies. It seemed that in a few minutes my lot 
would be cast where hope nor mercy never could come. I thought 
if I went, I would go praying, and when I had given up all for 
lost, unexpectedly, that trouble was removed, that burden of 
mind was gone, and Jesus appeared in my mind, as my Savior. 
It seemed that by faith I could view him with expanded arms, 
and I believed he had appeared to remit my sins. Joy filled 
my soul — nothing troubled my mind, until about the next evening, 
when something said to my mind, "perhaps you are mistaken, and 
have missed the true substance," and my prayer was that if I 
am deceived, undeceive me. That has been my prayer from that 
time until now. I have had some Joyful time, and sometimes 
in the dark. I set a time often to go to the ohurch, to see 
if they would have me, but would think creation, it would be 
better for me. I be that, perhaps I might do something, that 
would be reproachful to the cause of God, and I did not wish to 
do that. So I kept from joining the ohurch, until the 27th of 
November, just six months, and was baptised the next day. 
Then there was something else, weighing on my mind, which was 
on my mind while under conviotion I believed that, if the 
Lord ever spoke peace and pardon to my soul, I would have to 
preach Christ, the way of salvation. This weight was on my 
mind, so that, it could have no peaoe. 

About the second Sunday in October 1826 I let the people know 
what was on my mind, and oommenced from that time, to try to 
preaoh, and Boon found I oould not preach; and tried to quit, 
and oould not rest in that situation. I had an elder brother 
if the Lord would call him, he could preach, as I thought — 
but he did not. 



31 



Something over two years after my commencing, I thought I 
would marry, and I would have an excuse, to stay at home. 
I was married the 12th day of February, 1829, but that did 
not relieve my mind from preaohlng. The duty of preaching 
was greater, but, I was slow of speech, and of stammering 
tongue, and could not preach, After trying, and quitting 
for about nine years, until the fourth Sunday in June, 
1835, the church at Walnut Fork, had a prayer meeting ap- 
pointed, and I spoke of going, and my oompanlon, opposed It, 
and It seemed that I was tied where two ways met. But I 
started and went on crying for about two miles and when I 
got to the place, the brethren were looking for me to 
preach. But I soon left the meeting-house — it seemed like 
I had the heaviest burden that any person could bear. I 
tried to read for consolation. At length I became recon- 
ciled to be anything that, the Lord should make of me, and 
bear all the scoffs and persecutions the world could vent, 
in all its malice. I have never set any resolutions to 
quit preaching, since that time — but have been trying to 
declare the plan of salvation, and glorious scheme of re- 
demption through Christ. My companion was very much opposed 
to my leaving home, to go to preach, but she never tried to 
throw any obstruction In my way to keep me from going, but 
had everything ready as far as she could do when she had 
timely notice. After our ohildren began to get large en- 
ough to attend to the business, and carry on the work of 
making a support, she became more reconciled to my going. 
We lived together nearly fifty years, had 8 children, and 
raised 6, which are yet living. 

I was ordained, on the third Sunday In November, 1843, by 
a presbytery, composed of Elders James Morphis, David Clark, 
and Thomas Valentine. But my ministry has been limited, 
and I have not traveled extensively, as many other preachers, 
But I have been trying to declare to the churches that, I 
have had the care of, what I understand to be, the way of 
salvation. I have never sought after preferanoes, or ap- 
pointments among the Baptists, but wherever the church or 
Associations said I should work, I went at it, with as much 
cheerfulness as any person. I have served the Association 
as Clerk about thirteen years, and Moderator a few times, 
and when they said some other person was their choice, I 
gave up cheerfully. I have always contended against any- 
thing in the church, or Association, that, I thought con- 
trary to sound doctrine, or good order — contending against 
all the worldly institutions of the present day, ooming 
into the church, but let the world have them as they belong 
to them. I have already said, my wife and I lived together 
about 50 years; she died on the 29th day of September, 1878. 
She was a Baptist before we ever married and was much es- 
teemed by the Baptists. She was agood, nice, saving house- 
keeper. I have been living a lonely life, but am going 



32 



and preaching as much as I can. I am now in my 77th year. 
I have kept the faith, and trust there Is a crown of right- 
eousness laid up for me, that the Righteous Judge will give 
me and all those that love His appearing, and His Kingdom. 
So my beloved brethren farewell In christian love. 

Lewis M. Edgar
